When we finished our white-water rafting trips, we always exited the raft underneath this incredible bridge. The New River Gorge Bridge is 3,030 feet in length and was completed in October 1977. A travel challenge was solved. The bridge reduced a 40-minute drive down narrow mountain roads and across one of North America’s oldest rivers to less than a minute. The bridge was the longest single-span steel arch bridge in the world for 26 years and is now the world’s fifth largest.
